COURSE OVERVIEW
Development activities such as business, industry, and large development projects play a crucial role in the social and economic development of a country. These activities, however, can also be a major source of local, national and trans-boundary environmental damage with serious effects on the physical environment, biodiversity, climate and human health. The traditional approach to addressing environmental issues by developers has been reactive, ad-hoc and end-of-pipe manner. It is now well known that this approach is often times very costly to the local, national or regional economies. Uncontrolled economic development that depletes natural capital and generates serious pollution is not sustainable for either the present or future generations. Integrating environmental management into the design and implementation of development interventions can go a long way to mitigate the negative environmental effects and to enhance the environmental and socio-economic benefits.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND?

The course is also relevant for officials from regulatory authorities in the above sectors and environment.
